For many who enter into drug and alcohol treatment, the first step in a person’s recovery process may be the management of withdrawal symptoms. When a patient has become physically dependent on a substance, trying to manage withdrawal symptoms at home without professional supervision can be both painful and potentially dangerous.
At Deaconess Cross Pointe, our inpatient professionals are available 24/7 to assist in supervising a person who may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Not only does a short-term stay on our inpatient unit ensure a safer place to manage withdrawal symptoms, but it also leads to a higher chance of recovery from attending our group programs. The length of stay on our adult inpatient units varies based on each patient's need. However, Deaconess Cross Pointe’s adult inpatient units only provide short-term withdrawal management treatment.
